It's not hard to spot the better of the two. Our tail light housings were re-chromed and then hand-painted, but they just don't have the crisp details like the new units. There are some areas that still have little bumps under the chrome and we'll not get into the bad the paint job. They do look good from 10 feet away, but close inspection revealed the shoddy work. The only excuse we have about our sub-par restored set is the Danchuk versions were not available when we bought them and, sadly, we paid nearly the same price.
